Hillary Clinton wants women to wear the feminism label with a badge of honor.

In an interview with Lena Dunham, the presidential contender said she's "puzzled" by women who refuse to identify as feminists, although they fit the definition and support gender equality.

"I'm always a little bit puzzled when any woman of whatever age, but particularly a young woman, says something like, 'Well, I believe in equal rights, but I'm not a feminist.' Well, a feminist is by definition someone who believes in equal rights," Clinton said during an interview for Dunham's new site, LennyLetter.com

Politico released an exclusive preview of the interview, which will be posted on Dunham's online digital newsletter on Sept. 29. Dunham co-created LennyLetter with "Girls" executive producer Jennifer Konner.

"I'm hoping that people will not be afraid to say, 'That doesn't mean you hate men,'" Clinton added. It doesn't mean you want to separate out the world, so you're not a part of ordinary life -- that's not what it means at all!" Clinton said. "It just means that we believe that women have the same rights as men, politically, culturally, socially, economically."
